James Badgett Dale (born May 1, 1978), known professionally as James Badge Dale, is an American actor. He is known for various roles in film and television, including his starring role in the AMC drama series Rubicon, Chase Edmunds in the third season of 24, Robert Leckie in the HBO miniseries The Pacific, and State Trooper Barrigan in Martin Scorsese's The Departed.

Early years[edit]

Born in New York City, New York, Dale is the only child of actor, dancer, and choreographer Grover Dale (born 1935) and actress Anita Morris (1943–1994). At age 10, he was picked out of his fifth grade class at Wonderland Elementary School in Laurel Canyon, Los Angeles to test for the role of Simon in a remake of Lord of the Flies. After five months on location in Jamaica, he returned to his schooling at Wonderland Elementary. He is an alumnus of Manhattanville College, where he played for the hockey team until he suffered a leg injury.[citation needed]

Career[edit]

His most notable works to date are in the 1990 film adaptation of Lord of the Flies (in which he played the part of Simon) and the role of Chase Edmunds in the third season of the Fox TV series 24 (which he later reprised in the video game of the same title). He also appeared in CSI: Miami and CSI: NY as serial killer Henry Darius. The storyline originally began in the CSI: Miami Season 4 episode "Felony" and ended in the CSI: NY Season 2 episode "Manhattan Manhunt", resulting in a crossover between the two shows.[citation needed]

In 2006, he was cast in the pivotal supporting role of Trooper Barrigan in The Departed. He then was cast as the lead in AMC's political thriller Rubicon which revolves around a secret society that pulls the strings on the world political stage like the alleged Illuminati and the Council on Foreign Relations. It centers on brilliant analyst Will Travers (Dale) discovering that his employers are not who they seem to be. He also stars as one of the three leads in the big-budget HBO miniseries The Pacific from executive producers Tom Hanks and Steven Spielberg.

In 2013, Dale played Eric Savin in the Marvel Comics-based Iron Man 3, Captain Speke in the science fiction thriller World War Z, Dan Reid (the title character's brother) in Disney's The Lone Ranger, and the brother of Lee Harvey Oswald in Parkland.
